Hey Smartie!.......{Back to School w/PKS}

Happy Friday everyone!!!
Whooooo Hooo the weekend is upon us! Any fun plans???
I am off to football practice with my son in a few minutes and then it is a weekend of hanging out around the house, getting some yard work done and of course some crafty time!
I want to play along with the new August Release challenges over at The Peachy Keen Connection! Plus there is a new PK a whole weekend of some Peachy goodness!!
I did get a chance to make a project for Challenge #2 over at The Peachy Keen Connection.
(I know working backwards)
This challenge, hosted by Melissa is
Office Supply Challenge
"Raid the office"  Make a project with your Peachy Keen Stamps and include some everyday office supplies. (Notebook paper, paper clip, post-it notes ,pencils... get creative)
So for my project I made this cute hanging notepad.
Hope you like it!!!
 I used a post it note file from Lori Whitlock and altered it slightly to make it work more for what I wanted. The file comes with a slot to add a pen, but I didnt have one that fit, plus I wanted to add some cute images and a sentiment to the top.
So this is what I did, I cut out the base with some Kraft card stock and then the top layer with the adorable ABC paper from Recollections. Then using some matching lined paper from the same pack, I cut them down to the size of a post it note~ 3x3.  I hot glued a binder clip (my office supply) and then clipped the pages with the binder.

Here is a close-up of the lunch box and the die cute letters. Isn't that PK face adorable!!!!! Gotta LOVE my Peachy's!!!

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft, Recollections~Back to School
Stamps~PKS~ Smartie the Owl
My Creative Time~ Circle Font
Cuts/Dies~ Lori Whitlock~ Post it Note Hanger
My Creative Time~ Build a Banner
Embellishments~ 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon~Holly Berry
Binder Clip
chalk and white gel pen

So there you have office supply project... I added a magnetic sheet to the back so I can hang it on the fridge and write little notes to put in the kids lunchboxes. Such a fun idea right???
Well thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT night!!!
